World Tartan Day with Union Square

Ahead of World Tartan Day this year Union Square shopping centre challenged me to creating seven SS18 looks using tartan garments found within the stores in their centre.
I LOVE a challenge, so was excited to get started on creating some statement tartan looks.

Plus if you want to win £100 to update your wardrobe for tartan day then go and enter Union Square's Facebook competition...

My two favorouite looks were this pink tartan mini and gucci inspired tee and this longline tartan blazer and flared jeans.

I already have this mini skirt in red from Topshop and I wore it to death in winter with chunky knits so when I saw this pastel pink version I knew I had to have it. Plus the whole look together gave me total Cher from Clueless vibes - something I'm always down for.

Paired with chunky trainers and a tee it creates the perfect comfy, casual summer look however you could definitely add some knee high boots and a lace cami to dress it up for night time wear.

Next up was this cropped jeans and blazer combo, something a bit different for me but I loved using the different tones and textures used to create a statement day look. This blazer again can easily be styled casually or in a more formal look and as such is a perfect tartan staple for this season. Blazers are a really easy way to inject some tartan into your look and are such a must have item right now, walk into any store in Union Square and your sure to find one...
Throughout the various clothing stores in Union Square including River Island, Outfit, Superdry, H&M, New Look and Hollister there were so many different tartan clothing pieces dependant on what ever your style, budget or occasion may be. From summer plaid camis in Hollister to tailored tartan blazers in River Island the tartan trend really can work for everyone.
I definitely recommend exploring Union Square to update your wardrobe for tartan day this season, it's a key print which never goes out of style and is a guaranteed statement piece. 

Head over to my Instagram stories to have a look at my other tartan outfits from the week...
